Nobel Biocare's NobelReplace implants now offer more restorative options with two additions to the line:
NobelReplace Conical Connection (CC) features an internal conical connection designed to preserve marginal bone by minimizing micro-movements and potential micro-leakage. It also withstands higher torque and lateral loading stress, minimizing forces on the retaining screw and prosthetic component. The implant has been designed with an integrated platform shift to increase soft-tissue volume for higher esthetics, is suitable for use with all prefabricated abutments and individualized CAD/CAM NobelProcera Abutments, and has the same prosthetic portfolio as NobelActive with restorative options on both implant and abutment level.
NobelReplace Platform Shift (PS) features built-in platform shifting designed to maximize soft tissue for natural-looking esthetics. The internal tri-channel connection provides tactile feedback for accurate and predictable abutment placement. The company has also expanded its NobelActive implant concept with a 3.0-mm implant for areas with limited space. It's specially designed for the placement of single-unit maxillary lateral incisors as well as mandibular and central incisors, and is composed of grade 4 titanium that offers excellent fatigue (160 Ncm) and torque strength (>100 Ncm).
In addition, the next generation NobelClinician diagnostics and implant treatment planning software is now open to other major implant systems and being offered on both Mac OS® X and Windows® platforms. NobelClinician combines a patient's detailed clinical information with 3D radiographic data to create a virtual environment that enables the clinician to take control of all key parameters associated with the treatment approach, implant system and positioning.
